the greater transparency and the stronger governance we need in britain's policing. let me turn to the specific questions i have been asked in recent days. first, it has been suggested that my chief of staff was behaving wrongly when he didn't take up the commissioneruate's offer to be briefed on police investigations. i have said repeatedly about the police investigation they should pursue the evidence where ever it leads and arrest exactly who they wish. that is exactly what they have done. number ten is the exchange between my chief of staff and john yates. the reply to the police made clear it would not be appropriate to give me or my staff any privileged briefing. the reply that he sent -- the reply that he sent was cleared in advance by my permanent secretary jeremy hayward. just imagine mr. speaker if they had done the opposite. if they had asked for receiving privileged information, even if there is no intention to use it. there would have been justified outrage. to risk any perception that number ten was seeking to influence a police investigation in any way would have

to lend money to than singapore or hong kong, france, germany britain or indeed canada. i believe when this historic episode is written, michael, they will lay the blame squarely on the part the republicans and personally on john boehner in particular. let me explain why. for ten years on international markets we've known about the deficit, the trade deficit, and knew it had to be sorted out and were looking for an approach on that and you've had various commissions in that regard. what the republicans decided to do was up the ante. accelerate things and have the fight now. and what in effect did they do? we'll use the debt ceiling, meaning they're saying to the rest of the world, you knee $14 trillion we've length to you and our own people? come tuesday we may not pay any interest on it and may not repay the principle. they hold the rest of the world to ransom. what do they get in return for that? remember here from s&p, about $4 trillion of spending cuts or revenue increases to start bending the curve down. when obama was talking to boehner three weeks ago we getting towards that. no
of the investigations that are now ongoing. this has been an extraordinary story in great britain with implications for a worldwide media empire. >> 168 years coming to an end. breaking news with mike taibbi. thank you so much. >>> mixed reviews for president obama's first-ever twitter town hall. during yesterday's hour-long event, the president took about 17 questions from users all over the country. most were about jobs and the budget, including this one from house speaker john boehner. boehner asking quote, after embarking on a record spending binge that's left us deeper in debt, where are the jobs? >> obviously, john's the speaker of the house. he's a republican and so this is a slightly skewed question. but what he's right about is that we have not seen fast enough job growth relative to the need. we haven't gotten the kind of cooperation that i'd like to see on some of those ideas and initiatives but i'm just going to keep on trying and eventually, i'm sure the speaker will see the light. >> kim is business editor of the times-picayune in new orleans. she was part of the team that picked the
are reportedly expanding their investigation into conduct here. the other in great britain. rupert murdoch's son is being challenged for claims he made to members of parliament. let's start there with atika shubert in london. james murdoch said, as far as he knew, the phone hacking was a single rogue reporter. but two former executives are denying that. >> reporter: that's right. this all hinges on one particular e-mail. basically, "news veof the world said this was only limited to one private investigator and one reporter but an e-mail named another reporter. this showed that it was more than just an isolated case. now, at that time, james murdoch had also authorized a payment to a phone-hacking victim for a massive amount. it was a million dollars which is very unusual. what he said in parliament he had authorized this payment thinking it was the only isolated case. now, what the former lawyer for "news of the world" and the former editor are saying that's not true. in fact, they showed him that e-mail before he authorized that payment and it's important because it may show an attempt to try a
opposed to obamacare because i lived under national health in britain for three years and i know what happens. eu end up with a ration care. this last saturday on my program i had a nurse practitioner call in from arkansas who said that already they are being turned down for treatments. they request treatment and are being turned down under medicare because the person is terminal. since they are terminal, the treatment is not worth giving. they suffer and die. there is a woman going blind and that she cannot get treatment for her element that is causing her to go blind, because she is terminal. dr. berwick, put in a recess appointment ito be the head of medicare, is it in a love affair with the british system. they deny people 59.5 because it is not a good investment. even president obama said it was perhaps not the best use of resources to give his grandmother and a hip replacement after she was diagnosed with terminal ccer. i guess she could hobble around in panama she was dying of cancer. that is a -- not the kindh -- whilee around in pain b she was dying of cancer. that is not the
's a fascinating story. the murdochs basically drew a line in the sand at the hearings in britain a couple days ago. there's a lot of terrible things going on, a lot of people are culpable, but we didn't know about it. they did a good job i thought. the problem with the story, it's got to stand up. if it stands up, they escape. if it doesn't, they're in big trouble. some of the executives blamed, are saying, hey, we told james murdoch, james murdoch didn't understand why they paid people off, he was new at the job, he agreed to go along with it. the legal manager and the former editor of the "news of the world," two very senior executives at news international have issued aut!ñ statement say that's not true, we actually briefed him in detail on, he knew exactly what was happening. it's not clear if that's the sort of start or trend and people are concerned and say the murdochs got it all wrong and they were lying basically to parliament, then they're in big trouble. >> with all you know and your experience, you working in the community, do the murdoch statements align with what you've heard about
. in this country and in great britain as well, we have what's called the litigation privilege. a fancy phrase meaning whatever you say in a courtroom or whatever you say in furtherance of what goes on in the courtroom, could be in a judge's chambers. could be in a conference room is absolutely privileged meaning it cannot form the basis for litigation. if that were not so, then these trials would never end and people would always sue others for what they said during the course of the trial. also if that were not so, it might inhibit people from answering truthfully a question put to them in the courtroom. now, this is a little bit unusual because it came from the mouth of the lawyer. whatever lawyers say in the courtroom cannot form the basis of a lawsuit. where did he get this from? did he make this up or did she tell him to say this? if he made it up, he committed an ethics violation but that's between him and the ethics prosecutors in florida. if she gave him information on which to base this outrageous claim, then he's not only permitted to do it but he exercised his judgment and decided
